The Grilled Octopus and the veal Marsala were delicious! had a great time. Live music on Saturday and Wednesday. We look forward to our next visit!
Had dinner here with daughter, son and DIL to celebrate DIL's birthday. Mixed reviews but I seemed to be the only one disappointed with the meal. We started with a dozen baked clams which were very good but VERY small. Tasty but not much to eat for $14. Meal comes with soup or salad; the cream of chicken soup was excellent. Also excellent was the hot bread loaf. No problem getting additional loaves.
I had the chicken parm, which comes with meat sauce. Not much meat in that sauce and there was a disappointingly small amount of cheese. The sauce wasn't very good and I'd only give 2-3 stars for that meal. Daughter had Pasta Valencia which has an abundant amount of seafood over linguine in a spicy white wine sauce. Very large portion and she loved it. Son had a veal dish and DIL had the lasagna and they both gave their meals 4 stars.
We each had dessert, the coconut cake, chocolate cake and tiramisu were very good, the cannoli not so much (no chocolate chips or pistachios; very bland). Throw in two glasses of wine, a soft drink and one cocktail and the prices sure added up.
Total cost of the meal without tip was around $200. Biggest problems I had were that they charged for one soft drink refill and even though we were there for a birthday, they didn't even give DIL her dessert for free. That struck me as quite unusual and when we were leaving we saw a big banner outside that touted a discount for your birthday. Really? I don't plan on returning as there are many other options for Italian food in the SW burbs.
Food is amazing. prices good, service great. Owner makes his rounds at tables to make sure your happy. love it
Nice place to share dinner with your honey. The staff is nice. The wine is good and the ambiance is romantic. A little noisy, but not enough to ruin your evening. Great entertainment on the weekends!
